Thinktecture.IdentityModel 4.0

June 27, 2012

As Dominick mentioned recently, I have started to help working on the Thinktecture.IdentityModel security library. My first contribution (which will be ongoing) is to maintain a .NET 4.0 compatible version (while Dom works on the 4.5 version). The claims based part of this will continue to use Windows Identity Foundation while the 4.5 version will use the new claims APIs built into .NET 4.5. I think there are enough people that will be on 4.0 for a while that this effort is worthwhile. There’s more than just claims support in there – there’s JWT and SWT token support, WebAPI authorization helpers, cookie protection helpers and more.

Here is the 4.0 GitHub repository.

    Can you please port HttpAuthentication MessageHandler to 4.0?
    I have ACS authN implemented but the methods are called irrespective of the presence of authorization header in the HTTP request.

      @HRJ: I was busy working on the CORS support, so I got a little behind on Dom’s recent additions. I will be working on this next/soon.

    Is there a demo to set up a connection to the IdentityServer with 4.0? I’ve only seen the one using the extension for VS 2012 with .Net 4.5.

      If you want to use IdentityServer with a .NET 4.0 application you can, you just need to use the WIF 3.5 library in the RP.
